The Two Week Wait

The two week wait is probably the longest two weeks ever. It must be how children feel it takes for Christmas to come again each year. I try to be patient as I wait to be 10 DPO (days past ovulation) because that is when I could test, if I wanted to. The excitement of getting the test out, feeling ready, and then waiting for that second pink line to appear. When it doesn't show I just feel a sinking in my stomach. During the past few months I have tried to wait to test because the disappointment is just too great but the hope inside me takes over and I find myself peeing on a stick again.

This morning my temperature dropped and I started spotting. I am 13 DPO. I felt sad all day long. However, if this is the end of this cycle I'd like to get another started so we can get to the good part. I just wish I knew exactly what it was I should be doing in order to make this happen.


  1. I Know how you feel, for 11 months I have been doing the same and last month I just stopped, couldn't do it anymore. I feel a bit better at not checking my temps and peeing on sticks for 7 days a month checking my OV. I think sometimes one needs to take a break to get ones sanity back.

    I wish I knew what it was that I need to do too!

  2. I've been trying myself as well. I've been patient but sometimes it's just... I don't know. I've been to my doctor and he tells me the same thing. Guess we'll just have to wait, take a break and who knows we'll be lucky tomorrow. :)

  3. Taking a break sounds like a great idea and I have actually been thinking about that lately. Maybe I will.
